Dear pillay

Thanks so much for your question and welcome!

A sacrohysteropexy is a procedure where a mesh is permanently attached to the cervix and sacrum (a bone in your spine) and brings a woman's womb and cervix back into their normal positions.

It is possible to have a baby after having this procedure.

Are you thinking of having this procedure done?

Only one woman worldwide has gone on to have a successful pregnancy following sacrohysteropexy. Mr Broome Consultant Gynaecologist at Royal Bolton Hospital performed the procedure laparoscopically and subsequently delivered a healthy baby girl by caesarean section12 months later.
